KUWAIT, June 11 (KUNA) -- Up to 250 expats from different nationalities have converted to Islam during the first five days of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, the Islam Presentation Committee (IPC) said on Saturday.
The IPC aspires, through field preaching and cooperation on the part of Kuwaitis and expat communities, that converts to Islam would hit up to 1,200 during the month, IPC Director General Abdulaziz Ahmad Al-Duaij said in a press statement.
He added that the holy month has a special sanctity and religious atmosphere, and that the number of converts always increases through its days.
Preaching and cultural sessions are organized for the newly converts as part of the Iftar banquets, to further acquaint them with the teachings of Islam, he said. (end)
